Dear all,

At last, Arts Catalyst has its own home. Hope to see you all there 
sometime.

MEDIA RELEASE

Arts Catalyst launches Centre for Art, Science & Technology with 
London's first presentation of Tania Brugera's initiated project, Arte 
Útil alongside YoHa's artist/citizen science project, Wrecked! on the 
Intertidal Zone

Notes from the Field: Commoning Practices in Art and Science: Thu 28 
January -- Sat 19 March 2016

For over 20 years, Arts Catalyst has pioneered art that engages with 
science and technology, commissioning over 125 ambitious artists' 
projects and numerous exhibitions. In January 2016, for the first time, 
Arts Catalyst opens a Centre for Art, Science and Technology in London's 
King's Cross. The centre will provide a space for artists and scientists 
to experiment and create new projects, and enable vital interactions 
between artists, experts and audiences. Exhibitions will reflect and 
extend Arts Catalyst's national and international projects and the work 
of partners. Having this base will also allow Arts Catalyst to develop 
long-term projects with local communities around King's Cross.

For its opening exhibition at the centre, Arts Catalyst presents 'Notes 
from the Field: Commoning Practices in Art and Science'. This 
multi-faceted project investigates the notion of art as a tool or tactic 
for action with communities, with a focus on projects involving science 
and technology or driven by ecological concerns. 'Notes from the 
Field'... presents aspects of Arts Catalyst's ongoing art and citizen 
science project Wrecked! on the Intertidal Zone with lead artists YoHa, 
Critical Art Ensemble, Andy Freeman and Fran Gallardo, who are working 
with communities on the Thames estuary. Alongside this, it presents the 
Arte Útil archive, a projectinitiated by artist Tania Bruguera, which 
chronicles a history of art projects that create tactics to change how 
we act in society. In an archive room designed by Collective Works and 
ConstructLab, housing physical copies of selected Arte Útil case 
studies, and through exploratory workshops and discussion events, 
visitors will be able to  speak with invited resident guests, undertake 
their own research, or propose new Arte Útil case studies. Contributing 
artists, scientists and experts to 'Notes from the Field...' include
Alistair Hudson, Dimitri Launder, Sylvia Nagl, Graham Harwood and 
Veronica Ranner.

Forthcoming Programme 2016

Arts Catalyst's 2016 programme will support artistic practices that 
explore the reciprocal effects of art and science, of politics and 
machines, of communities and environments. With a focus on research and 
experiment, it will generate new exchanges between artists, scientists 
and public; involve and surprise audiences with bold art and ideas; and 
work with communities and groups to encourage self-determined use of 
science and technology for social, cultural and environmental purposes. 
 From its new Centre in King's Cross, Arts Catalyst will work out across 
the city, in populated ecological sites of coasts, forests and rivers, 
and with partners in the UK and internationally.

In Everyday Urbanism, resident researchers including Territorial Agency 
and Goldsmiths Centre for Research Architecture will explore 
environmental and social issues in the city, developing 'tool kits' and 
'users manuals' with and for local residents. Don't Follow the Wind, an 
unvisitable art exhibition by a group of artists in the Fukushima 
nuclear exclusion zone, will engage audiences in central London with 
ideas surrounding radioactivity, risk and deep time, alongside a 
residency by artist Kota Takeuchi. New commissions by Thompson & 
Craighead, Lise Autogena, Crowe & Rawlinson and Susan Schuppli will 
further examine our contemporary nuclear culture. In YoHa and Critical 
Art Ensemble's Graveyard for Lost Species, an old Thames cockleboat, 
engraved with the names of lost species gathered from a thousand local 
stories, will become a poignant temporary public monument, fated to 
disappear gradually back into the estuary mud. In a major project, 
artists and engineers will reimagine the seminal 1966 event 9 Evenings: 
Theatre and Engineering by Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T), on 
its 50th anniversary, with new commissions by artists and engineers, 
including Robert Whitman (one of the original E.A.T. artists) and Auto 
Italia, and events in collaboration with Afterall. New research projects 
with partners including Bournemouth University will explore 
people/ecology relations through embedded artist and scientist residencies.
